Something weird happens when i turn, the brake pedal goes all the way down to the floor! i rechecked everything until this morning when i took the truck to alligment, the caliper is hitting the lower control arm when i turn WTF! this is hard to my to explain (english) but i know what needs to be done, i need to relocate the steering stop thing so the spindle hits the lower control arm and not the caliper, i didn't expect this but at least it was a bolt on procedure, i didn't have to grind or do anything else.
Despite what everyone else told me i went with the 32's, i'm keeping the 15x7's so i don't think it looks bad at all, to be honest i wasn't expecting this height, it looks like 5" lift to me but i couldn't be happier with the results, that's exactly the look tire size/lift combo i was looking for, i didn't want to raise the rear but i guess i am just a little bit, enough blah, onto the pics
